Mayan Chocolate was designed for its rejuvenating effects on the mind, body, and soul, producing a warm and uplifting chocolate-based drink that makes an excellent alternative or addition to coffee.
Cacao is a rich source of vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, and pleasure-inducing substances such as anandamide (cannabinoid-agonist – cacao is the only food source), phenylethylamine (the love hormone), theobromine (a natural stimulant), and MAO inhibitors (which increase serotonin, endorphin, and dopamine levels). Cacao regulates and protects the heart, enhances circulation, and increases stamina and endurance while providing the necessary conditions to promote an aphrodisiac effect. The theobromine in cacao raises dopamine levels and functions in a very similar way to caffeine with a more pronounced vasodilating action which increases blood flow to the brain and extremities. The vitamins and minerals contained in cacao play crucial roles in the co-factors needed to produce our hormones and neurotransmitters while nourishing the body with the proper nutrients required to support a healthy, active life.
Catuaba is the premier mood-enhancing and aphrodisiac herb of the Amazon, enhancing one’s sexual drive and desire, greatly improving blood flow through a potent vasodilatory action, and both increases energy levels while producing a calming effect. Catuaba functions as a dopamine reuptake inhibitor and stimulates the flow of serotonin and acetylcholine in the brain, producing effects such as improvement in memory, motivation, mood, concentration, and sociability.
Muira puama is a powerful nootropic herb and stimulant with aphrodisiac and adaptogenic qualities. Muira puama enhances energy and motivation via beta-adrenergic and D1 dopamine receptors while improving memory and focus through acetylcholinesterase inhibition. Muira puama is a potent neuroprotective and neuroregenerative agent, a potent circulatory stimulant, contains a wide variety of essential oils with potent antioxidant qualities, and increases overall sensitivity to all stimuli, including one’s dreams.
Carob is a sweet-tasting chocolate substitute that has an excellent nutritional profile containing a hefty supply of Vitamins A, B1, B2, B3, B6, and D, Calcium, Potassium, Iron, Magnesium, Manganese, Selenium, Fiber, and an antioxidant count second to none. Carob has been used by the Egyptians as a food source as well as a dye for creating hieroglyphics.
Chuchuhuasi is an Amazonian native herb belonging to the same family as khat (Catha edulis) and has been traditionally used as a stimulant and anti-inflammatory. Chuchuhuasi contains cathine and related compounds, which have adrenergic and dopaminergic properties.
Guarana contains a high concentration of xanthine alkaloids which enhance alertness, memory, stamina, and endurance. Guarana’s unique antioxidant and alkaloid profile produces stable uplifting effects by moderating the actions of its caffeine, theobromine, and theophylline content. This serves to increase mental capacity, energy, and the production of motivational and euphoric neurotransmitters without overstimulating the nervous system. Guarana is one of the most nutritious stimulant tonics available.
Maca is a potent adaptogen with a stunning vitamin and mineral profile that can only be achieved thanks to its unique growth environment in the high altitudes of the Peruvian Andes Mountains. Maca boosts energy levels, regulates the endocrine system to balance hormones, and supports a healthy libido. Maca also increases physical and mental strength which fortifies one’s determination and willpower. Maca is a profoundly well-rounded superfood that can dramatically improve quality of life when used long-term.
Sarsaparilla is a delicious herbal tonic most known for its use as the main ingredient for the drink of the same name: Sarsaparilla. The root has been used for venereal disease, to increase appetite, as a diuretic, and as a general health tonic or panacea. Sarsaparilla supports healthy hormone production and cleanses the blood, kidneys, and liver.
Suma is a South American root with a mild vanilla-like taste that has been hailed as an adaptogen, nourishing the body with rare and essential nutrients while helping it deal with stress, all the while providing energy. It has many similarities to Ginseng and contains a vast amount of beneficial constituents, including the rare mineral Germanium.
Mucuna pruriens is one of the best foods available for the fortification of the entire body. It increases motivation, mental capacity, and endurance. Its unique nutrient profile promotes optimal delivery of its l-dopa content into the brain for effortless conversion to dopamine, as it is the most closely-related precursor to this vital neurotransmitter. It is also possibly the best natural tool available for the promotion of human growth hormone levels, which has potent anti-aging and fat-burning effects.
Cinnamon functions as a central nervous system stimulant and mental enhancing nootropic herb. It contains a potent antioxidant and anti-inflammatory profile and is used to effectively lower blood pressure and blood sugar levels, maintaining a steady flow of energy that lasts throughout the day.
Vanilla is one of the most exotic and delightful spices of them all. Native to the Amazon Rainforests, the bean pod is used as a spice and a flavor enhancer for chocolate, coffee, and all manners of foods. Vanilla is the second most expensive spice by weight, only surpassed by Saffron.
Cayenne pepper is an especially spicy cultivar of the Capsicum genus, stimulating immediate adrenaline and endorphin production on contact which greatly improves digestion when consumed. Cayenne enhances circulation while stimulating the heart and lungs, sending blood to the brain and extremities. Cayenne is included in this blend for its nutrient absorption enhancing qualities as well as its incredible amount of antioxidants, two factors essential for experiencing the true essence of what Mayan Chocolate is capable of
energy support, adaptogen, anabolic, aphrodisiac, mind enhancer, euphoriant, dopamine support, mood lifter
Best consumed in the morning hours on an empty stomach or lightly simmered for 3-5 minutes (1 serving = 1-2 tbsp as a nourishing stimulating tonic). This blend is not intended for daily use.
The combination of these superfoods provides a rich source of nutritional support while dramatically improving the body’s natural balance of pleasure-inducing neurotransmitters. The antioxidant profile of this nerve tonic combination is unrivaled due to the perfect synergy of its effects. Not only do each of the ingredients serve to dramatically increase serotonin, endorphin, and dopamine levels, but all the vitamin and mineral co-factors are supplied in generous amounts to support sustained neurotransmitter production while the antioxidants work to potentiate and maximize their lifespan. At the same time, the stimulating constituents of this combination increase circulation to the brain so that these valuable nutrients and precursors are delivered to the necessary locations.
